storms. i think that may be one of the lessons of katrina. like senator pryor, i think there have been increasing numbers of declarations of disaster, and it's kind of hard to be against declaring a disaster so we always declared disaster, and i think there is not every disaster is created equally there are disasters like what happened in joplin and other disasters people need help with the question is can the federal government keep doing it and have enough money to keep supplying endless amounts of money to fema. the president has requested 46 trillion worth of spending unfortunately we don't have 46 trillion that will add the 11 trillion to in our debt so we have to make difficult choices and even when people are in need we have to decide can we take care of every natural occurrence that goes on or should we be reserving the federal government involvement for the catastrophic times when communities are wiped out and need help like katrina and joplin's case but i look forward to learning more from the panel. >> thank you, senator paul. let me say for my colleagues here let's go ahead
